This is my first ever solicited fiction piece; it had to be set in Japan and have positive messages. I wrote this story based on a murder of a homeless woman that happened last year. I was furious about the atrocity because I, for one, as a freelancer and single mom, could imagine myself living on the street someday. I hope my messages reach people who need to hear them.
The other writers are from India, Guyana, Trinidad & Tobago, Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Bangladesh, the U.S., Mauritius, and Papua New Guinea.
